, that in the first couple of months in massachusetts, and that's really the only precedent we had, there were only a couple of thousand people who signed up. we also know about the very troubled rollout of the prescription drug site. we do know that fixes could be made. one thing we also know is that if you put a bill on the floor, and that's what i challenge speaker boehner to do, put a bill on the floor to fix it and see if that doesn't devolve into another appeal. remember where they began. first they undermined it. then they tried to repeal it. now they're trying to sabotage it. one of the problems we're having now is that they're having to take money from other parts of hhs because the appropriators have not in fact funded what needed to be done with this site. one of the changes i think that's going to have to happen is that the public is not going to action i believe, be forced to pay a fine if the website isn't up and if the whole thing isn't running more smoothly. i don't think anybody wants to put this over on the public. but nobody for one second believes that my committee, which is now

start in massachusetts as well. 123 people signed up the first month, for example. do we need to just give this thing a chance? >> well, i mean it's certainly -- i think everyone agrees that the rollout has been a disaster. the waste of money put into this website is a mess and clearly people are frustrated and they can't sign up for something. >> well, i don't know if it's a waste of money. they are fixing it. >> okay. so i guess i would concede that eventually i would imagine this website is going to get fixed. so i mean i get that part. i think the bigger issues that we are going to face are, number one, the fact that hundreds of thousands of people are certainly being cancelled by their insurance companies when they were promised by the president that that wouldn't happen. >> i want to start with that because i want to be fair about that. the people who are getting these notices, first of all, they have to be offered another plan. and the reason that they're getting these notices is because they don't have hospitalization, they don't have maternity care, they have sky-high deducti

in massachusetts, which is probably the most instructive one, only 0.3% of the people who ultimately enrolled did so in the first month. the vast majority did it right before the deadline and most of the young people did it before the deadline. i just don't want to panic when we're only 30 days, 40 days into enrollment. we've got plenty of time for this thing to work and ultimately given the fact that we know it's an affordable product, especially for young people to have subsidies, they're going to end up signing up. i think a lot of this is just a political cloud created by republicans who never wanted this thing to work in the first place. in the end, we've got a product that sells. we know that in connecticut. >> do you have a sense of when, depending on what the numbers are, you'll either panic or breathe a sigh of relief and say, see, it is working. >> i think we're not there yet. we need to get well into next year as we start to look at the numbers as we come towards march before any of us have a sense of whether the website has had a significant hangover. but the fact is, is that i think

of rain in the last 12 hours up there in connecticut and massachusetts. we had about 2 inches of rain anywhere from philadelphia all the way down to d.c., including new york city. so the heavy rains have shifted northward but we still have to wait for some of that to drain out of the way. the longer you can wait, the better the roads will get during the day today. the green on the map shows you all the rain. the heaviest is now anywhere from the connecticut/new york border shifting up into maine. notice the rain is completely shut off in washington, d.c. temperatures will be falling too, but not below freezing. i'm not too worried about ice. and the snow side of the storm really underachieved. we were expecting more than this but only got a couple inches in buffalo. it's 29 in cleveland. so there will be slippery roads across the ohio valley and snow near the great lakes. but most of you are used to that. the winds, hold on to the steering wheel with two hands. look at that gust in newport, up to 50. boston at 35. so extreme eastern new england very windy out there right now still. as
